Structure of the answer

Introduction– write a few introductory lines about the  corruption, especially in India.

Body-

Discuss in points as to how corruption is a politico-administrative issue as well as an issue of ignorance of the citizens. E.g

  • Civil servants who refuse to toe the line are removed from office;
  • similarly, businessmen who oppose it are penalised vis-à-vis their competitors.
  • Furthermore, an image of the state has grown up over the years according to which the civil service, far from being a body that exists to implement the rights of citizens – rights that mirror their duties – is first and foremost perceived as the least risky way of getting rich quickly.
  • All of which helps to make corruption seem normal.
  • Public administration in developing countries is often bureaucratic and inefficient. And a large number of complex, restrictive regulations coupled with inadequate controls are characteristic of developing countries that corruption helps to get around.
  • Bring out the importance of information and awareness about one’s rights in cotrolling corruption etc.
